Despite their recent dispute, the rapper revealed to the press that he's got nothing against the British rockers and would welcome them to do music projects together.
After giving a standout performance at Glastonbury Festival on June 28, not to mention opening his set with Oasis' song "Wonderwall" now it seems that Jay-Z and the English band's Noel Gallagher are set to put down all their differences. The news comes from the rapper himself who said that after his performance Noel has been trying to reach him. Jay-Z said, "I haven't spoken to him. I heard he was reaching out, but I haven't spoken to him."
Not only that, speaking to MTV, Jay himself also stated that he is very welcoming to do any music collaboration with Oasis or maybe Noel himself if everything is possible. "Oasis as well - it doesn't matter to me, I don't bear any grudge, it's all good. I just believe in good music and bad music, I've always said that. You look at any interview from the beginning of time, I've always stated that I don't believe in the lines and classifications that people put music in so they can easily define it," Jay said.
The dispute between Noel and Jay happened just before the rapper played at Glastonbury. The feud was triggered by the Oasis' frontman's statement that he doesn't like the festival organizers' decision on picking Jay as one of the event's headliners. "I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong," Noel said.
Beside speaking about the possible collaboration with the English rockers, the rapper also explained about the projects that he plans to do after finishing his tour. "Well, after the tour, I'm going back home and we'll look at it and see if I can start a project this year. I would love to do it, to be honest with you. It would be a great thing to do when I come home from tour, but it's vibe. I can't say, 'On this date this is going to happen.' If I get home and the vibe is right, it'll happen. If not, then top of next year," he said.
Moreover, Jay also added that although he hasn't set any details about a new album, he already has an idea for it saying, "I can't give you the concepts or themes, but I've got a very clear direction of where I want to go with this one, and we'll see how it works."
